Add a new SSH login/user

I've spent my spare time for the past few days searching on the Internet and reading man pages trying to figure out how to add another SSH login (username/password) to my server but to no avail. I was just wondering if anyone can point me to the correct config file or give me the syntax for a command to add another SSH username/password. I have a fair amount of experience with Unix but am pretty new with configuring a server.

By the way the server is running FreeBSD 5.3 with the default version of SSH that is installed with it.

Thanks in advance!

If you add a new user to the system, wouldn't it be another SSH login?

Found the problem

I removed the account, added it again, and now it works. I must have done something wrong the first time I added the user.

Thanks for the quick reply.
